Benthic secures Australian gas geotechnical work

Energy firm Woodside has announced the appointment Benthic to undertake an offshore geotechnical investigation at the Scarborough project in the North Carnarvon Basin, offshore Western Australia.

The work for the new liquefied natural gas resource includes investigation of geohazard risks in the region of the Pluto escarpment, geophysical interpretation and soil testing for engineering parameters along the pipeline route, and soil sampling and testing for engineering parameters in support of the infield facility, structures, and drilling.

The geotechnical investigation will be undertaken in water depths of up to 1,400m using a remotely operated drill operated from a multi-purpose platform supply vessel.

Work on the ground investigation is expected to be completed by the end of March.
